Mount a HeatSink on the Rock64 using 3M Thermal Tapes
Well, just got a Rock64 1GB, kind of excited when I saw the specs, but when I "make -j 3" or up armbian will generate a lot of errors (in console and dmesg), maybe because of heat. (make or make -j 2 will go through). And after I rebooted the system... bang! It was dead... Never went up again... will need to physically access the hardware...

I just want to aria2 from source...

I used kirkwood / Rpi (0, 0w, 3B), never had similar problems. 

So disappointed!
Try a fresh post outlining your problem. Can you download Armbian Buster, image it to an SD card to see if your Rock64 is functioning correctly
Maybe it's the power supply instead of heat. Sounds a little like a classic Raspberry Pi on a marginal power supply problem.

You can try: cat /sys/devices/virtual/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp but it's weird, maybe it's not a temperature sensor. On a Raspberry Pi you look at /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp. Divide the number by 1000 for degrees Celsius.
